Nat Sherman 1930 (Short Ashes)

Nat Sherman 1930 (Short Ashes)

A few weeks ago I received a surprise email from the folks over at Nat Sherman. They asked if I would be interested in trying their Nat Sherman 1930 and possibly putting together a review. Times are tough and I’m in no position to turn down cigars, so I gratefully accepted.

A short time later I received three Nat Sherman 1930 cigars in the mail. I wasted no time and began smoking them in preparation for a review. Out of …

Macanudo 1968 (Short Ashes)

Macanudo 1968 (Short Ashes)

Over the weekend I found myself in a particularly good mood and inspiration to record a cigar review struck. I cracked open my coolidor with the intention of digging around for something interesting. Before I could move a single cigar, I spotted a Macanudo 1968 perched on the top of the pile.

Prior to the review, I hadn’t smoked a Macanudo 1968 in a long while. Come to think of it, I hadn’t seen mention of it anywhere online in …

Sindicato Affinity

Sindicato Affinity

CIGAR

Today I am taking a look at the Sindicato Affinty cigar. This will be the third out of four cigars they produce so you may see the fourth in the near future. This is the toro size which is 6×54.

A lot of nutty taste to start off with this Sindicato Affinity and a slight hint of pepper. Very slight hint. Mild cigar all around right now. Not much has changed other than the smoke getting creamier. Pepper is …

Azul Vintage 2008 (First Impressions)

Azul Vintage 2008 (First Impressions)

Several weeks back I got an awesome care package from Jerry Cruz. Inside the package was a number of cigars I hadn’t had the pleasure of smoking yet. One of them was the Azul Vintage 2008 from Epicurean Cigars – Distributed by House of Emilio.

Lighting up the Azul Vintage 2008, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. The last time I smoked anything associated with Steve Ysidron, it was when he was with Savinelli. …

EPC Cardinal Maduro

EPC Cardinal Maduro

What do you do when you suddenly find yourself awake at 3:30am and are unable to get back to sleep? Well, you could roll out of bed, make yourself a cup off coffee, grab a EPC Cardinal Maduro, and take advantage of the deep, sultry, morning voice while recording a cigar review.

The back-story as to why I was up so early is laid out in the video. With comments being so supportive, I didn’t want to waste the opportunity …

Drew Estate Undercrown Gran Toro

Drew Estate Undercrown Gran Toro

Earlier this week I posted a review of the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte and the comments on that review were inspiring. As I read through them, while smoking a Drew Estate Undercrown Gran Toro, I got the sudden urge to fire up my video camera.

At first I didn’t want to do the review, mostly because I posted a review of the Drew Estate Undercrown Dogma recently. I figured, why fight the urge? I fired up the camera and …

Ashton Classic Crystal #1

Ashton Classic Crystal #1

CIGAR

Checking out the Ashton Classic Crystal #1 and I get a slight barnyard on the wrapper and just tobacco on the foot and cold draw. This is only available in one size a 6.5×44 at a MSRP of $11 a stick.

Plunging right into this Ashton Classic Crystal #1 with a meaty fruit taste up front that brings to mind a plum. Woody undertone with a tiny bit of spice up front. Creamy texture to the smoke and mild …

Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte

Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte

When was the last time you considered smoking a Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte? I know, it is practically an old-timey cigar that isn’t hip anymore. Chances are, you’ve been walking past them in your local cigar shop for years and didn’t even realize it.

Even though I haven’t smoke a Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte in years, the line is still dear to my heart. It was actually the first box purchase I ever made. The brand hadn’t even crossed …

This Nat Sherman 1930 cigar has a great looking retro band on it while having a nice chocolate brown wrapper.

Price is $8.50-$12 which seems to be what more and more cigars are being released at. I …

Undercrown Dogma by Drew Estate

Undercrown Dogma by Drew Estate

I want to let you in on a little secret. I have a pretty bad habit of firing up a cigar and pressing record on my camcorder. I record a review, or two, with the intention of going back and editing prior to posting here on Stogie Review.

Every once in a while (actually, a lot more often than that), a review gets forgotten and gets stuck in some sort of review purgatory on a memory card. I stumble onto …
